LEGISLATIVE RESOLUTION commending the members of Save The River upon the
occasion of their designation for special recognition for their dedi-
cation and ceaseless efforts to preserve the St. Lawrence River

WHEREAS, 35 years ago, a group of concerned citizens came together to
protect and preserve the ecological integrity of the St. Lawrence River
through advocacy, education and research; and
WHEREAS, Since then, the members of Save The River have made it the
leading grassroots advocacy group to protect one of the world's great
rivers; and
WHEREAS, As Northern New York's major environmental watchdog, Save The
River has advocated at the local, state, national and international
levels to protect and preserve this international resource along the
border between the United States and Canada; and
WHEREAS, Save The River's membership have become international leaders
in the campaign to stop the introduction of aquatic invasive species,
improve water levels and improve spill response planning; and
WHEREAS, The group has helped restore endangered and threatened
species like the common tern and bald eagle population through education
and volunteer efforts; and
WHEREAS, Its members have helped monitor the water quality at area
beaches, encouraged the marking of navigational hazards and shoals, and
built a cadre of volunteers who keep an eye out for pollution, wildlife
die offs, and other changes in the ecosystem; and
WHEREAS, Today, Save The River represents more than 1,400 individuals
and families who live, work and play along the St. Lawrence River,
including residents, business owners, summer people, vacationers, Ameri-
cans, Canadians and others who love one of North America's great natural
resources; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
commend the members of Save The River upon the occasion of their desig-
nation for special recognition for their dedication and ceaseless
efforts to preserve the St. Lawrence River; and be it further
RESOLVED, That a copy of this Resolution, suitably engrossed, be tran-
smitted to the members of Save The River.
